Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Guess who is NOT in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? 

Kiss, Yes, Genesis, T Rex, Alice Cooper, Grand Funk Railroad, Chicago, BTO, Deep Purple, Guess Who, Linda Ronstadt, Moody Blues, ELO, Bad Finger, Blood Sweat & Tears, Blue Oyster Cult, Boston, Cars, Cheap Trick, Dire Straits, Doobie Brothers, Emerson Lake and Palmer, Bad Company, Heart, Humble Pie, J. Geils Band, Jethro Tull, Joe Cocker, Journey, Mitch Ryder, New York Dolls, Peter Frampton, Rush, Procol Harum, REO Speedwagon, Steppenwolf, Steve Miller, Styx, Ted Nugent, Warren Zevon, Pat Benetar…

This is just a partial list!  I mean, there probably would be no Madonna without Pat Benatar yet she just got in.  What a crock.  It’s all commercial now.  How sad.

 Anyway, let’s get a moratorium on the lame induction process for the hall of fame and get some of these cornerstones in there!

    Warren Zevon should have been inducted long before his death. The least they can do now is make up for this amazing oversight. But they’d rather induct Granmaster Flash. This is a “Rock and Roll” Hall of Fame? Hardly! It’s a joke.

    I have my own take on this.

  3. Roland Says:

    Yes, Warren Zevon needs a Hall of Fame of his own. EVERYONE should listen to him.

    I agree 100%. The Rock Hall of Shame is full of lame acts and has never considered great bands that were successful,groundbreaking,and influential.People who wrote their own songs,played their own instruments very well,and cared about their fans.Instead they induct artists who are manufactured by hype and media and get radio play because of politics and clout.

    I wonder if there is any way to force the “Hall of Fame” to take the Rock and Roll title off it’s “credentials”.
    Some of the latest Non-Rock ‘n Roll inductees make the place a farce! That takes the honor away from the great bands that are in and deserve to be associated with Rock ‘n Roll.

    “Hall of Fame” would be more accurate. At this point I’ve heard it referred to as “The Hall of Lame”

    I think everyone can agree that James Taylor, Madonna and Jam Master Flash are NOT rock and roll. They are folk, pop and hip hop. They really need to just make the music hall of fame if they are letting anyone and everyone in.

    Also, how does The Loving Spoonful get in and Ted Nugent not??? Well, you can’t really use Ted since he will NEVER get in due to politics. Jan Werner is one of the founders and main persons on the board and since he is so far left, he will never let the likes of Ted in. A better comparision is Kiss. How in the world do people like Curtis Mayfield and The Loving Spoonful get in yet Kiss or Alice Cooper are not? It makes NO sense at all.

    to the board of the hall of shame, your list of nominees for 2007 are terrible. i agree with alot of people KISS should have been in awhile ago. They have influenced alot of bands. I will never travel to Cleveland to go their. People should be outraged. who will be nominees next year, Nsync and Backstreet Boys will be next. you at the hall of shame should be ashamed of yourself. what about the likes of Judas Priest, Terrible Ted, Alice Cooper,The Cars and many more deserve this honor. Again shame on you
